Opera for free

Opera today began offering its alternative for free, permanently removing the ad banner and licensing fee. The ad-free, full-featured Opera browser is now available for download: "Today we invite the entire Internet community to use Opera and experience Web browsing as it should be," said Jon S. von Tetzchner, CEO, Opera Software. "Removing the ad banner and licensing fee will encourage many new users to discover the speed, security and unmatched usability of the Opera browser." Opera was previously available free of charge with an ad banner and users had the option of paying a licensing fee to remove the ad banner and receive premium support. The Opera web browser is available in twenty (20) languages.

    Great News!

    Now if they could only offer Opera for the PSP, I would still pay for it!

    Opera FOC

    Damn. I went through all the trouble of getting one of the free serial numbers when they had that 'free serial number day' last month.

    I hope this version doesnt crash when i try to open it on my 10.4.2 eMac.

    Isn't Omniweb

    The last hold-out for free web browsers? Even if so, it's worth the money.
